Hockey: Nomads second team start with a win


The newly formed Lancaster Nomads second team started their season with a 3-1 win at Blackpool 3rds in the Lancashire Central Women’s Division Three.

The home side took the lead at Stanley Park, the first shot being saved superbly by Karen Saunders with a Blackpool forward pushing the rebound into the net.

The Nomads came back strongly however and Hannah Chetwynd-Diggle scored a superb goal to make it 1-1 at the break.

Blackpool came out fighting in the second half but it was the Nomads who went in front, Janet Woodhouse providing the cross for Chetwynd-Diggle to score her second.

Lauren Baldwin then got the final touch in a goal-mouth melee to make sure of an opening victory.
